    One of the many, many gems to be found here is in Howard Gardner's piece (Cracking Open the Lockbox of Talent): "As wrongheaded as the teacher's response is the viewpoint put forward by some psychological researchers, and most recently popularized in Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success. This is notion that there is nothing mysterious about talent, no need to crack open the lockbox: anyone who works hard enough over a long period of time can end up at the top of her field"

    Another gem, this time in the piece by William Calvin "Climate Will Change Everything" where he states "Climate will change our way of doing science, making some areas more like medicine with its combination of science and interventional activism, where delay to resolve uncertainties is often not an option. Few scientists are trained to think this way -- and certainly not climate scientists, who are having to improvise as the window of interventional opportunity shrinks."
